Our goal is to make it easier for you to tell great stories with embedded Tweets. We recently redesigned embedded timelines on web with a modern, responsive design, which makes them look great on any web page, whether mobile or desktop. Now, we’ve made it even easier to embed those timelines directly from any CMS. Today, we’re announcing oEmbed support for embedded timelines, making it as easy to embed a hundred timelines as it is to embed a single one today.
You may be used to getting the embed code for timelines by creating a widget with your Twitter account, giving you an embed code with a widget ID. Now, with oEmbed support, any CMS can quickly and easily embed user, collection, list, and likes timelines through your existing oEmbed workflows, just like you’ve been able to do for single Tweets (no more widget IDs!). If you’re using the oEmbed API for single Tweets in your CMS today, give this new API a try. As always, we look forward to your feedback. Let us know what we can do to make it even better for you in the “Websites” category.
With these recent changes, it should be much easier for you to tell great stories with Twitter timelines. We’re excited to see how you use these features to tell the best stories at scale, and we look forward to hearing your feedback. Stay tuned for even more ways to easily embed Twitter content coming soon!
